CCCXV - Out of the Frying-Pan into the Fire

Postby TheLordOfBricks » Thu Nov 16, 2017 1:47 pm

Hello! This is my sixth of 19 posts I will be doing, where I will be building my way through the Hobbit story, one chapter per post, I will do this over the course of the year...

This is my first entry to the CCCXV, and it is for the diplomatic mission category.

So, about the build. This one is at maximum 32 x 57 x 41, but the rockwork narrows down to 20 x 28 at the bottom. I estimate it is around 3500 pieces, and it weighs around 12 pounds! The landscape is kind of unusual for me, and it is a dark green and olive green. While most of it is just SNOT, and some SNOTed off of SNOT, there are a few angles pieces in there, which I am happy with. :P Enjoy! :D

The light grey is for the required lighter colored background in entering the competition:

Overall, I am pretty happy with this build. Even though it took a quarter of my building time in the CCC, I think it is worth it for spending that amount of time on it. It is the most rockwork I have done in one build yet, and I like it, the Christmas BL order turned out useful! :D Also, I will be going for 7 entries this year(all of which will be Hobbit related), so be looking out for the rest! :D

C&C Appreciated!

I hope you enjoyed!

To God be the glory!

That's some impressive rockwork! I also like the tree on the right.
The left two look a little stubby, but I'm guessing that's due to a shortage of leaves?

Keep it up man, you're doing fantastic!

This looks very good! Amazing rockwork as said above.
How does it stand so straight? Are there any hidden "pillars"? ;)

Thanks guys! @Isaac, yep, I used all of my olive green plant leaves here, so I guess it is a little bit of a shortage. @Jan, yes, there is a huge chunk of filler brick behind to keep the landscape up, and the rockwork from falling over away from the rockwork... Again, thanks guys!

Is there SHIP-like brick engineering behind the scenes here with Technic components or straight System bricks? Either way this is impressive in scale!

Thanks! Just straight system bricks. :)
